"Please give us a call"

I’m happy to teach all ages and abilities in a hopefully enjoyable and relaxed manner. 

I teach both viola and violin from beginners to advanced. Piano I teach from beginners to intermediate. 

Perhaps you have played the viola, piano or violin before and require a few lessons to decide if you want to take up the instrument again. 

If you have a specific project such as a music practical exam, entrance exam or competition, I can help with this as well.

For those wishing to take exams, my philosophy is to use them as an aid to my teaching, and most importantly, to give students a sense of achievement. Ideally they should be entered into exams when they are at a playing level where they should be awarded a merit or distinction. 

I see no value to a student entering an exam prematurely and "scraping" a pass, especially when there are normally a number of sittings per year to choose from. 

Particularly with children and young adults, success in a music exam and the self-esteem that flows from good results can be the foundation of academic success in other subjects. It also can prepare students for auditions and entrance exams as well.
